Just have a few (well, you only need one) great friends like CG. I first met CG when our daughters were in elementary school and my daughter (Jessie) sat on her daughter (Rachel) in the play ground. (As you can see by the photos, some things don't change.) Somehow they became great (and I mean great in every sense of the word you can imagine) friends.
Today, Rachel had planned an impromptu canoe/picnic—lugging her Dad’s red canoe over the fence near their house and into the canal and padding to the arboretum—with friends and CG convinced her to invite Jess, after we had worked out that I could drive Jess to meet them at the arboretum. The canoe part was a bit out of her (Jessie’s) league, although CG has great plans for getting her up to speed so we can do another camping trip (this time with the red canoe) together.
Well, that was easy!
As for CG, I can honestly say that SHE’S the best mom, and the best friend, in the whole world!
